McDonald’s is being called on to stop its roll out of paper straws in the UK and Ireland, amid claims that they “dissolve” in drinks.
The fast food giant is switching from plastic to paper straws at their 1,361 restaurants after customer pressure.
McDonald’s say they are “doing the right thing” while a supplier said customers need to “compromise”.
The restaurant chain supplies 1.8 million straws to its four million UK customers each day.
Petition creator Martin Reed started it a week ago, complaining the new paper straws dissolve as you drink them.
Many social media users agree, with some claiming paper straws are “horrible” while one says it is like “drinking a milkshake through an empty toilet roll tube”.
